    2008 saw the mainstream acceptance of streaming video, demonstrated by the explosive popularity of authorized streaming

    sites like Hulu and ABC.com. At the same time, P2P piracy still

    accounted for the majority of traffic across the Internet.

    The owners of one of the largest torrent indexing sites, TorrentSpy,

    announced in March that they were shutting down in the face of

    ongoing litigation with the Motion Picture Association of America,

    which eventually won a $100 million award against the site. Owner

    Justin Bunnell said he was shutting the site down to protect the

    privacy of the people who used it.

    Daniel Dove, an administrator of the torrent tracking site Elite Tor-

    rents, was convicted in what the Justice Department called the first

    criminal conviction after jury trial for P2P copyright infringement.

    FBI, Customs and local law enforcement, participating in Operation

    D-Elite, shut down the site and arrested administrators in 2005 as

    part of a nationwide federal crackdown against the illegal dis-

    tribution of copyrighted movies, software, games and music over

    P2P networks. Two other Elite Torrents administrators pled guilty

    and served five months in prison. Dove was sentenced later in the

    year to 18 months.

    The Federal Communications Commission determined that

    Comcast had implemented technology across its network that

    throttled or delayed packets being sent to customers using P2P

    applications. The issue first appeared in 2007 when the Associated

    Press reported that Comcast customers claimed that their network

    connections were being throttled and the company denied that it

    was doing it. The FCC decision was viewed as a victory for Net

    Neutrality advocates.

    The European bandwidth management and analysis firm ipoque

    reported that the amount of bandwidth consumed by people using

    file sharing applications increased in 2008 over the previous year,

    though at a slower rate of growth. The company also reported that

    BitTorrent and eDonkey were the largest contributors and that if

    those protocols were shut down, the amount of P2P traffic across

    the Internet would drop dramatically.

    With the growing enforcement focus on P2P networks, file sharers

    are shifting their attention to Cyberlockers and Usenet newsgroups.

    GigaNews, the largest Usenet provider, reported at the end of the

    year that upload traffic jumped to a sustained level averaging

    well over 400 megabits per second, representing more than 4.3

    terabytes of new user generated content and discussions daily.

    By the end of the year BayTSP reported that 15 studios were using

    the companys Content Authentication Platform to identify where

    their content is appearing on user generated content sites and col-

    lecting business intelligence data.

    Introduction

  • Counts

    BitTorrent extended its dominance as the most popular file sharing pro-

    tocol in 2008, according to data collected by BayTSP on the num ber of

    infringements of client content found across P2P protocols and user-

    generated content sites. BitTorrent surpassed eDonkey in 2007 and the

    two protocols accounted for the vast majority of copyright in fringements

    of BayTSP client content. IRC and FastTrack have become increasing-

    ly obsolete sharing protocols during 2008, with both falling off the Top

    10 list. Replacing these outdated protocols are user-generated content

    sites like Youtube, Mega video and Dailymotion.
